Ashampoo Anti-Virus 2014 Editor's Review

In last few years, the demand of PC security suites has shot up, owing to emerging new threats and malware that are devised every now and then. This has prompted several software makers to jump into PC security bandwagon to grab a pie of the growing market. Ashampoo, a German software company known mostly for its media apps and PC performance tune-up tools is the latest to do so. Ashampoo antivirus is powered by 2 core engines- that of Bitdefender and Emsisoft. It also packs in some bells and whistles along with core malware protection to woo the users.

Ashampoo antivirus can be installed on PCs with Windows XP and later versions. The installation is simple but those with malware infested PCs can have a tedious task ahead. In some such PCs, the installation can take a long time. In worse cases, the app can crash.

The app has a UI that is very much inspired by Windows 8 style. Users of Avast antivirus may find its UI similar as well, especially the home screen. The UI is more or less uncluttered and beginners will find it easy to learn operations. It has quick access buttons for checking quarantine, launching update and scan. Changing the default skin is also possible.

However sleek and attractive the UI maybe, the malware detection and clean up performance of an antivirus tool makes it worth considering. As far as malware cleanup rate goes, Ashampoo antivirus sits in middle of the lot. While its malware removal score is not bad there are so many rival contenders that fare better. This is disappointing since Bitdefender Antivirus, in both free and paid iterations, scores far above in this section. There are some small but annoying performance quirks that can annoy busy users. You may find full scans not completing at times.

Ashampoo antivirus fares better in malware blocking than removal and you can count on it for blocking download of most of harmful downloads. While it scores well, established contenders like Norton offer superior performance. It is somewhat unacceptable that PC security software lacks a scheduled scanning option and this is where rivals outshine Ashampoo antivirus.

Ashampoo antivirus comes with a handful of utilities. You get a File Wiper to shred sensitive data securely. There is a start up tuner component to let your PC boot up faster. The app can also clean up your web browsing history, even from third party browsers. One nice thing about the app is that it does not slow down the PC much. After installing it in your computer, you will not feel much difference in boot time or while multitasking.

Positive Points:
•    Sleek, clean UI.
•    Bundled utilities are quite useful.
•    Decent malware blocking.
•    Twin malware protection engines.

Negative Points:
•    Average malware detection and cleanup.
•    Difficult installation on virus infested PCs.
•    No scheduled scanning.
•    Some performance quirks exist.

Conclusion:
Ashampoo’s foray into antivirus segment is not exactly a stellar success, going by the performance of the suite. The suite feature two of the prominent anti virus engines yet its malware protection seems less than adequate in real world scenario. The UI is sleek but minor performance quirks will annoy seasoned users. It gets beaten by several rival apps in both malware detection and cleanup. The app redeems itself to an extent in effect on system performance since it is relatively light on resources. The bundled utilities are useful but you can find similar tools in web for free nowadays. Overall, you will do better by opting for free or paid antivirus solutions from stables of AVG or BitDefender.

Rating: 2.5/5
